Hello. I remembered that earlier this year you said that 'there was more to the fewer spokes than the eye can see.' Can you give us ore details, and are less spokes a la 12/16 for Zabel advantageous over 20/20?

I really didn't "get it" but why don't you mail/PM to him?

Less spokes weight less and are more aerodynamic. I'm very happy that they changed my order from 20 to 16 spokes front. Now I think that 12 may be enought if I order next ones. They are so solid. And less pokes looks even more exotic. :wink:

I't 185cm tall and weight 85kg. Not a climber....TT's are more fun.

To add to the questions-

What are the Obermayer wheels that you hinted about a couple of months ago and you said you couldn't tell us more till Eurobike?

Well Eurobike is over - tell us more :lol:

I don't want to order and miss out on a newer model

The new LW "Obermayer" are online in German already. Translation is in process.
Basically they are "L´Alpe d´Huez" Wheels with heat protection in the rim and 12 spokes front.

Main Features are:

- extralite carbon layer setup with same stiffness data as standard sets
- Tune Mag 160 hub with ceramic balls and carbon axle rear
- LW low friction bearings front
- some little secrets in construction
- no limitation in normal use incl. road races

Claimed weight max. 1.050 grams / set. All 5 sets produced so far came out between 986 and 998 grams.

Frontwheels were all between 442 and 451 grams, rearwheels between 544 and 547 grams

2 GS1 Elite riders will most probably use them in Verona.

What we are most proud of is not the weight. The stiffness and usability is more important to us.
